Razors can get expensive, especially the cartridges, so you don’t want to pass up this offer! This razor is $7 on Amazon right now, so this a great deal!
The deal may not last long, so grab it now if you want it.
Saving Tip: The best place to buy razors is at drug stores. It is usually cheaper to buy a new razor since it comes with the cartridge than to buy just the cartridges.

Congratulations to all you new or expecting parents! We have tons of new babies to celebrate, so let’s talk couponing for baby. As a new mom, dad or even grandparent, you can start planning ahead and getting stocked before baby makes their debut and it will make the first few months a little less sleep-deprived!
I put together a fun list of 10 money saving tips for all you new moms and dads. This works for grandparents that want to help too!
Top Ten Money Saving Tips for New Parents
- Weekly Baby Deals Lists on Southern Savers
Each week we post a list of all the best baby deals you can get around town. This is a great way to quickly see which store has the best prices on everything from wipes to baby food.
- Stocking up on Diapers
One of my most popular baby posts covers stocking up on diapers, what price you should pay and how many you’ll need. Use it as a guide to stock your diaper closet at a fraction of their retail price.
- Cloth Diapers
If you’d rather try your hand at saving on cloth diapers, we’ve covered that too! They can be a great way to save money and resources if you can incorporate it into your routine.
- Make Your Own Baby Food
To save on baby food, use coupons for jars or pouches but also consider making your own baby food. During summer months produce can be really inexpensive and you can freeze it ahead.
- Sign up for the Publix Baby Club
One of my favorite grocery store perks for becoming a new parent is the Publix Baby Club. They send you a free book, all sorts of store coupons and even a few coupons for free products!
- Stock up for Mom & Dad Too
Don’t forget to have your pantry and medicine cabinet stocked too so that you don’t have to run out and pay full price because you ran out of toothpaste. Couponing in the months before baby arrives can really take a lot of stress and financial burden off new parents.
- Save on Baby Gear by Price Matching
Never shop for large baby items without cost comparing with Amazon, Target and other large retailers. If you need something today and can’t wait for it to be shipped, take advantage of price match policies at Target, Walmart or Babies R Us and get the item today for the online price!
- Shop Secondhand
Venture out to local thrift shops, Goodwill stores and consignment sales. You’ll often find gently used clothing (sometimes they still have the tags on) at a fraction of the retail price. Create a stylish wardrobe for your bean without emptying your wallet.
- Never Say No to Hand-Me-Downs
The truth about baby gear is that you only need it for a short time. Most parents of toddlers now have a garage full of stuff they aren’t using. Talk to friends and relatives about inheriting their unused stuff. It’s a great way to save and they’ll be happy it goes to someone who can use it.
- Check Your Insurance Coverage for a Free Breast Pump
Recently with all the health care changes, most insurers are now required to cover some type of breast pump. Talk with your provider and see what your options are. This could be a way to save a few hundred dollars!
With a new baby in the house, I’m constantly looking for extra ways to save. All you other seasoned mamas, feel free to chime in with your favorite savings tips! I always get inspired when y’all leave comments!

As of today we have an all new community on Southern Savers. I was forced to make some changes to the old community when the company that ran it (Blogfrog) decided to end their system. After much searching and testing things out, I’ve finally got a new system set up!
Please know that we are having to start over from scratch. This is rather painful with over 11,000 community members in the old system. The cost to move all the data over was going to be a lot of money and might not have even worked.
Having a new system isn’t all bad though. Our new community has a ton of great new features!
What is the community for?
